I was about to post about this. On the suffolk county trunked when I have it on scan it gets stuck on one channel. It sounds like an open mic with random transmissions from all of suffolk trunked on it. Is it a problem on their part or my scanner?

Try Changing the settings on the Motorola End Code. You may need to set it to YES if it is currently set to Ignore

SOURCE: [link]

To Edit Trunking Systems Options press MENU. At 'Program System' press E/.
At 'Select System' scroll to the system that you want to edit and press E/.
Scroll to 'Edit Sys Option' and press E/.


Set End Code (Motorola only) sets how the scanner handles the transmission end code sent by most Motorola systems. The default setting is Yes.
Scroll to 'Set End Code' and press E/.
Scroll to one of two settings and press E/ to save and exit.
Yes- the scanner immediately returns to the control channel when it detects the end code.
Ignore- the scanner does not return to the control channel until the carrier drops.

I suddenly developed the same issue. Setting the End Code to "Yes" seems to have fixed it. Thanks!
